Testament and Exodus at the Fillmore Silver Spring

Thrash metal fans cannot miss the Dark Roots Of Thrash II Tour when it brings both Testament and Exodus to the Fillmore Silver Spring on Tuesday, April 28th of 2015! We’re so psyched that we want to get as many people out to this show as possible so this week we’re giving away a free pair of tickets to one of you lucky DCHM readers. To enter just leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thrash metal band is. You can go old school Bay Area like Testament and Exodus themselves, or Big Four like Anthrax and Slayer, or maybe new school like Municipal Waste and Warbringer or even go with a crossover band for you DRI and Power Trip fans! At 5pm EST this Friday, April 24th, a winner will be chosen at random (using Random.org) from all valid entries to win the tickets. Be sure to enter using a valid email you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, I won’t add you to any spam lists or sell your info or anything sleazy like that. If I haven’t heard back from the winner within 24 hours another winner will be chosen at random. If you can’t wait to see if you win or the contest is already over when you read this, then you can get tickets from Live Nation for $35.50 here.

On this tour Testament will be playing a set mostly consisting of material from their first three albums, The Legacy, The New Order and Practice What You Preach, so fans of the band’s classic older material are in for a hell of a show. And you may have heard that Exodus has brought back Steve Souza to front the band so you can expect to hear songs from their new album with him, Blood In Blood Out, as well as classic older material from when he was with the band in the 80s and 90s. The opening act for this show is going to be Shattered Sun, a Texas based band that is having their debut full length album, Hope Within Hatred, released this very week on Victory Records. Now to get you in the headbanging, crowd surfing, mosh pit shoving mood check out these videos by each band below and tell me what your favorite thrash metal band is in the comments!

Well, I’m going to go with consistency and there is only a few bands that hold consistencies with me but one that stands true to sound, look and their live performances. SLAYER!!!!

  7. Testament

  8. Razor all the way man! Can’t believe I get to see them live at MDF.
    If it’s Bay area thrash, it’s Vio-Lence.

  20. Wait… First 3 Testament albums? Really?!?! I was totally going to skip this. Serious reconsider going on here!!

  21. And oh, favorite? Very hard! Every favorite has worse albums… Except Slayer. They keep it up. And maybe Kreator. Damnit, do I have to pick one for it to count as an entry? My head’s going to explode.

  22. tough one but i’d have to say SLAYER!!!!!now somebody give their arm so i can carve it!haha

  23. That’s a tough one,
    In terms of older thrash I would have to say Megadeth

    New thrash I would have to say either speed wolf or Evile

  24. D.R.I. (Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) is my favorite thrash metal band. While the early stuff was more punk they developed the crossover sound and became my favorite thrash metal band in the process.


  26. Kreator.

  27. Coroner.

  28. Sepultura

  29. I saw Slayer twice, It is pretty much the best trash metal band ever.

  30. Sodom. Hope they show up for MDF 13
